If you're an aspiring DJ - or you just want to host an epic house party which Kanye West would be proud of - we've got everything you need to get started.

Look no further than our fantastic DJ range as you embark on your journey to become the next David Guetta or Skrillex.

To become a DJ, you will need:
  •          A laptop
  •          A controller
  •          A sound system
  •          Headphones
  •          Glowsticks and a whistle

We are renowned for our amazing laptop range - at amazing prices.

If you're just going to be using the laptop for DJ-ing, there's no need to break the bank. The ACER EXTENSA 15 2540 is available for less than £450. With its Intel Core i5-7200U Dual Core Processor and 8GB RAM, that'll do the job just fine.

If you want the best of the best and have the wonga to match, Apple remains the number one choice for music makers and DJs. We have a full range of MacBooks, with prices from £895.70. More here: https://www.box.co.uk/apple-macbook

There is free software available such as Virtual DJ to get you started.


Many DJs still opt to use vinyl, and that's absolutely fine, but more and more people are turning to controllers for their music manipulation needs.

Working in tandem with your laptop and chosen software, controllers allow you to change the music how you wish using knobs, encoders, jog wheels, faders and touch strips.

There has been an element of snobbery about controllers in the past amongst the DJ fraternity, but that does appear to be fading (if you'll excuse the pun). Creativity is creativity, after all.

We have a great selection, including the HERCULES DJCONTROL INPULSE 300, which has 16 pads, eight modes, large jog wheels and more. More here: https://www.box.co.uk/Hercules-DJControl-Inpulse-300_2422529.html

We even have a controller with a green glow, if you really want to stand out: https://www.box.co.uk/Hercules-DJControl-Glow-DJ-Controller_1919337.html

Sound system

You're going to need a sound system, otherwise no-one is going to hear your talent.

Crank your audio experience into another dimension with the LG OK75 XBOOM 1000W ONE BODY HI-FI SPEAKER WITH BLAST HORN. With booming bass, an RMS amplifier and heavy-duty speaker construction delivering huge 1000W output wattage, this sound system will blow your audience away.

A cheaper option, but still mighty in power, is the HERCULES XPS 2.0 80 DJ MONITOR, delivering sharp and pure treble.


DJ headphones are an essential to ensure clear, defined sound monitoring.

With fine-tuned acoustics, the APPLE BEATS EP ON-EAR HEADPHONES might be just the answer.

They are adjustable for personalised fit, there is passive noise isolation, and the one-year warranty offers peace of mind. https://www.box.co.uk/Apple-Beats-EP-On-ear-Headphones-Blue_2013951.html

Glowsticks and whistle

Ok, maybe not essential, but you wouldn't turn up for a football match without boots, so make sure you look the part when DJ-ing. Fake it until you make it, as they say.

Check out the HERCULES LED WRISTBAND PACK. The microphone built into the wristband detects sounds and vibration, enabling the wristband's flashes to beat in sync with the music! https://www.box.co.uk/Hercules-Led-Wristband-Pack_2321089.html

Get yourself the right gear, practice hard and who knows, you could be playing Amnesia Ibiza in summer 2020. Good luck!
